Intensive Pronoun Definition
An intensive pronoun is a pronoun ending in -self or -selves and is used to emphasize the noun or pronoun to which it is referring. Intensive pronouns take the same forms as reflexive pronouns but are used differently: myself, yourself, himself, herself, itself, ourselves, yourselves, and themselves.
Example of an Intensive Pronoun
Some examples of intensive pronouns would be the following:
Parts of Speech lessons provide the building blocks of grammar. GrammarFlip covers these topics in detail to ensure a solid foundation is built. First time learners and students seeking to review the parts of speech can both benefit from the instructional videos and slide show reviews.
Parts of the Sentence lessons are critical for understanding how the parts of speech function in language construction. From the basic to the advanced, these lessons will cover a wide range of grammar topics that can be used in any grade level or classroom.
Mechanics and Usage lessons equip students with the necessary skills to communicate clearly to all audiences. With a focus on the application of these concepts in student writing, these lessons tie together both simple constructions of grammar as well as the more complex such that any age or skill level of student will benefit.
